Riverside Fireworks

WITH Bonfire Night just a few weeks away, fire safety experts are once again reminding the public that the safest way to enjoy fireworks is to attend an organised display, such as the inaugural Riverside Fireworks.

Riverside Fireworks takes place, on Sunday, 6 November 2016, in the Riverside Park, Chester-le-Street, climaxing with a 25 minute, superhero themed fireworks' display, and is being run in conjunction with the:- 'The Fire Fighters Charity' and 'Durham Agency Against Crime.'

With around 1,000 fireworks related injuries each year, it's more important than ever that people stay safe, and the smartest way to do this is to avoid buying fireworks for personal use.

Keith Wanley, County Durham and Darlington Fire and Rescue Service area manager for operations, said:- "The best way to enjoy bonfire night and stay safe is to go to an organised display, such as this one. You'll see a lot more fireworks and it's a lot cheaper. Although we would advise people to attend an organised event, if you are planning to use fireworks at home then please follow the firework safety code, ensure the fireworks meet safety standards and are stored and disposed of properly."

Not only will Riverside Fireworks be the safest way to enjoy the festivities, the full evening of entertainment will also include a fun fair, live music, food and refreshments, plus a superhero fancy dress competition!

The gates for the event will open at 5pm, on the 6 November 2016, and the display will kick off at 7pm. Standard tickets cost £5, and children under 6 go free! Limited on site car parking will also be available, but this must be booked in advance via the website.

With demand expected to be extremely high, organisers Stanley Events are urging people to buy early to avoid disappointment.

Tickets for Riverside Fireworks are on sale now, and are available online, and for more information, and updates on entertainment, you can also find details on Facebook
